Summer reading program off, running

Luke Air Force Base children view 56th Security Forces Squadron tactical gear June 25 during the “Paws to Read” summer reading program at the 56th Force Support Squadron Library. “Paws to Read” summer reading program is 9:30 a.m. Wednesdays through July 30.

 
Round up your “two-legged pups,” ages 4 to 12, and send them “bounding” to the Luke Air Force Base Library this summer for a “play date” with the youth summer reading program. “Paws to Read!” is this year’s program theme.

It’s not too late for Luke parents to register their children for the program which began June 30 and goes to July 30. Each participant receives a free T-shirt at registration. Every week there are activities, entertainment and incentive prizes for each child who “sits, stays and reads” (or is read to) 20 minutes a day, every day during the program. Children meet at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
